Piety and Poverty: Working-Class Religion in Berlin, London, and New York, 1870-1914

By Hugh McLeod | Go to book overview

NOTES

Introduction
1.
Erhard Lucas, in his well-known comparison between the labour movements in Remscheid and Hamborn, Zwei Formen von Radikalismus in der deutschen Arbeiterbewegung ( Frankfurt/Main, 1976) somehow avoids any mention of the fact that one city was predominantly Protestant and the other Catholic. Standish Meacham, in his valuable A Life Apart: The English Working Class 1890-1914 ( London, 1977), pp. 15-16, 26, 53, 120, 164-5, 199-200, makes a few references to religion, but only to dismiss the subject as peripheral. Dietrich Mühlberg, ed., Arbeiterleben um 1900 ( Berlin, 1983), p. 126, mentions the importance of the church for many working-class women, but does not develop the point at all.
2.
See, for instance, Patrick Joyce, Work, Society and Politics ( Brighton, 1980); W. Brepohl , Industrievolk im Wandel von der agraren zur industriellen Daseisform dargestellt am Ruhrgebiet ( Tübingen, 1957); Klaus Tenfelde, Sozialgeschichte der Bergarbeiterschaft an der Ruhr im 19. Jahrhundert ( Bonn, 1977); Jürgen Reulecke and Wolfhard Weber, eds., Fabrik, Familie, Feierabend ( Wuppertal, 1978); S. H. F. Hickey, Workers in Imperial Germany: The Miners of the Ruhr ( Oxford, 1985); Karl Rohe, Vom Revier zum Ruhrgebiet ( Essen, 1986).
3.
As Gareth Stedman Jones does in his otherwise excellent "'Working-class culture and working-class politics in London, 1870-1900: Notes on the remaking of a working class'", Journal of Social History, 7 ( 1974), p. 471.
4.
I have summarized the debate in Hugh McLeod, Religion and Irreligion in Victorian England: How Secular Was the Working Class? ( Bangor, 1993).
5.
Some of the exceptions are Wolfgang Köllmann, Sozialgeschichte der Stadt Barmen im 19. Jahrhundert ( Tübingen, 1960); Vernon L. Lidtke, "'August Bebel and German Social Democracy's relation to the Christian churches'", Journal for the History of Ideas, 27 ( 1966), pp. 245-64, and "'Social class and secularization in Imperial Germany: The Working Classes'", Yearbook of the Leo Baeck Institute, 25 ( 1980), pp. 21-40; Hugh McLeod, "'Protestantism and the working class in Imperial Germany'", European Studies Review, 12 ( 1982), pp. 323-44; Josef Mooser, "'Arbeiter, Bürger und Priester in den konfessionellen Arbeitervereinen im deutschen Kaiserreich, 1880-1914'", Jürgen Kocka, ed., Arbeiter and Bürger im 19. Jahrhundert ( Munich, 1986), pp. 79-105; Richard J. Evans, ed., Kneipengespräche im Kaiserreich ( Hamburg, 1989), ch. 8; Lucian Hölscher, Weltgericht oder Revolution ( Stuttgart, 1989).
6.
A rare example of a study of working-class religion which is not limited to a specific ethnic group is Brace C. Nelson, "'Revival and upheaval: Religion, irreligion and Chicago's working class in 1886'", Journal of Social History, 25 ( 1991), pp. 233-53.
7.
Alan Gilbert, "Religion and Society in Industrial England: Church, Chapel and Social Change, 1740-1914" ( London, 1976), and The Making of Post-Christian Britain ( London, 1980); Robert Currie, Alan Gilbert and Lee Horsley, Churches and Churchgoers: Patterns of Church Crowth in the British Isles since 1700 ( Oxford, 1977)
